We are trying to plan the most amazing family holiday but not sure the best way to book. We have my husbands sister in London - the purpose of the trip is to spend time with my hubbys family.We hope to spend 2-2.5 weeks in londonbut this will be broken in half because we have extended family in Ireland and have been invited to a wedding which means we see nearly everyone in ONE DAY (GREAT) but intend to spend 6-7 days there and then when back from Ireland during the 2nd half of the London break we want to take our kids (@time of travel 9,7,5) to Paris for 2(?) days possibly eurostar. unless someone comes up with a better idea. Then we will be going to LA Disneyland WITH the London family(2adults 2 kids 10,8) 3 days @the parks then Vegas 2-3days (driving from anaheim before we head back to Sydney. Now the complicated parts that I would really appreciate some advice on are as follows:
How do we co-ordinate bookings with our London family for the USA leg ?
Should one of us book the accomodation for the other or should we book independently and ask them to note our other family will be booking?
We plan on staying at one of the resort hotels to maximise time and allow rest time during the day for our youngest- is this the right idea or is one of the good neighbour hotels nearby just as good an option?
Will it be best to include our Ireland flights in our main fare or get my london family to do it for us?
Should we book eurostar here or wait till we get there?
Should we do an asia stopover to break up the outgoing flight and make it an around the world fare or should we fly via usa and make it a return??
I havent looked at all is it possible to get a 9 seater to drive from anaheim to vegas? should we do it should london family do it how is the cheapest way to organise that ?
Should we find an awesome travel agent to do everything or should we segment this trip and break it up?? DIY etc????
Our London family dont wish to take their kids out of school and want them finished school before we arrive (they are paying for a large percentage of our flights) so we shouldnt arrive London before 23rd July.
Wedding 3rd August Galway Ireland
and from my research (please correct if you know better) dont do disney until after 2nd week of August
ALso need to include an English Premier league game if at all possible I cant find any start dates for next years season yet - anyone got any inside info??for booking purposes I feel like I need to get gracking on this and just want all the dates sorted
Thanks for reaching the end of my EPIC POST ;-)
